Days Inn – Fayetteville, NC

This Days Inn is located right off I-95, exit 49. It’s one of the better Days Inns we’ve stayed at.

The room price included a complimentary Continental Breakfast, free wireless internet, and a free USA Today newspaper. Our guest room had complimentary High Speed Wired and Wireless Internet, expanded cable TV choices, in room coffee pot, iron and ironing board, microwave and refrigerator.This days Inn has interior corridors which was nice and is a pet friendly facility.

There is a Denny’s Restaurant on the property too. Rates are reasonable, rooms are comfortable and quiet. I recommend it.


Marriott McDowell Mountain Resort – Scottsdale, AZ

This is a great hotel! We stayed here four nights last September. This is an all-suite hotel and our suite and bath were spotlessly clean and the beds were very comfortable.

On-site amenities include a heated outdoor pool, hot tub and a fitness center. There is also excellent on-site dining in the Zambra Grille and Agave Bar. The hotel is only minutes from Downtown and Old Town. The hotel also has spectacular desert mountain views.

We would definitely stay here again!

Comfort Inn Gateway – Rocky Mount, NC

This Comfort Inn seemed modern and very well kept. The rooms were nice and clean. The bathroom was nice with plenty of towels.

We went to the Outback for dinner located right next door and then the kids and I swam at the hotel pool. They have the basic free continental breakfast that was good enough to fill us up so we could get back on the road. Try to request a non-smoking room if you are not a smoker because you could definitely smell the cigarette smell in the rooms.

I would stay there again. We paid about $94 with taxes.


Residence Inn at Fossil Creek – Fort Worth, TX

My thoughts on the Residence Inn at Fossil Creek…

Good points:
Your rate includes a free breakfast.
They have a nice, clean pool and hot tub.
There are a lot of good restaurants within one mile.
Suites have a kitchen with dishwasher if you want to cook.
There is a gas grill available for use.

Bad points:
My room was not so clean.
There was mildew in the bath tub and on the shower curtain.
They didn’t vacuum behind furniture
The General Manager didn’t return my phone calls very promptly.

I wouldn’t stay there again.
